SmartWorld 2016 : The 2016 IEEE Smart World Congress
Call For Papers
Call for papers: The SmartWorld Congress
July 18-21, 2016 Toulouse, France
submission deadline: April 8, 2016.
The Smart World Congress is an event supported by the Task Force on Smart World that belongs to the Emergent Technologies Technical Committee(ETTC) of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
The smart world is to enhance everyday things with intelligence so that many tasks and processes can be simple, safe and enjoyable. The physical space where people interact like home and workplace can become more efficient. It consists of numerous "smart things" that can be endowed with different levels of intelligence, and may be context-aware, active, interactive, reactive, proactive, assistive, adaptive, automated, sentient, perceptual, cognitive, autonomic and/or thinking. Research on smart world is an emerging research field covering many areas. A series of challenge issues exist to move from the current level of computing services to the smart world of adaptive and intelligent services.
The IEEE Smart World Congress (SmartWorld 2016) aims at promoting original and unpublished research works covering science, technologies, applications and related categories on smart world. It provides a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers and engineers to exchange on advances and innovations on smart world. In particular, the following topics are considered.
Smart Objects and Interactions
Smart chips, tags, sensors, devices, wearables, goods, appliances, materials, textiles, IoT, etc.
Smart software, Machine to Machine, OS, programming, tools, interfaces, power/energy, reliability, etc.
Smart Systems and Services
Smart sensor networks, personal/body networks and systems, design, process management, diagnostic, optimal control.
Programming models, distributed computing, distributed intelligence, emergent properties, embedded intelligence.
Smart services, context-aware systems, smart clouds, smart big data processing, etc.
Smart Environments and Applications
Smart home, office, building, shop, campus, factory, farm, city, urban computing, etc.
Smart healthcare, transportation, robotics, energy consumption, environment protection, etc.
Personalization and Social Aspects
Mobile social computing, crowd sensing, human modeling and mining, etc.
Personalized recommendations, security, privacy, safety, affect and legal issues.
Smart World Education
Teaching smart world, demos, smart campus, academic and industrial projects.
Paper Submission Deadline: March 25, 2016.
Authors are invited to submit an unpublished original work that must not have been submitted to an other conference, workshop or journal. All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee and be evaluated for originality, significance of the contribution, technical correctness and presentation.
Authors must quote their names and affiliations (no blind review).
Formatting and Publication Instructions:
Conference papers need to be prepared according to the IEEE CPS format via IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings.

1) PAPER PAGE LIMIT:
- Regular Papers: 8 pages, including all figures, tables, and references.
- Workshop Papers: 8 pages, including all figures, tables, and references.
2) PURCHASING EXTRA PAGES:
- Regular Papers: Up to 2 extra pages may be purchased at $50 (US dollars) per extra page.
- Workshop Papers: Up to 2 extra pages may be purchased at $50 (US dollars) per extra page.
If you wish to submit a paper to IEEE SmartWorld 2016 or one of it's associated Workshops, then you should use the following EasyChair submission website and specify the track of your paper or the appropriate Workshop so that it can be reviewed by the appropriate Technical Program Committee and its reviewers.
Submit a paper to SmartWorld 2016 (SWC 2016):
The Proceedings of IEEE SmartWorld 2016 will be published by IEEE CPS (IEEE-DL and EI indexed). Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that if the paper is accepted, then at least one of the authors must register to the conference and present the work in order for the paper to be included in the IEEE Digital Library.
Best Paper and Best Demo Awards will be presented to high quality work.
Extended versions of papers will be considered for publication in special issues of several journals.
The proceedings of IEEE SmartWorld 2016 will be submitted to IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (IEEE CSDL) and IEEE Xplore . Proceedings will be submitted for EI indexing .
 While all conferences sponsored by the IEEE and/or published by CPS will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore and the CSDL, all conference proceedings must meet IEEE's quality standards, and IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings that do not meet these standards.
 The IEEE cannot guarantee that any particular abstract or index entry will be included in EI Compendex or any other indexing service. IEEE makes its best efforts to ensure indexing, but the indexing services are independent organizations not subject to IEEE control.
The Smart World Congress will be associated this year with five international Conferences and their workshops:
- the 13th IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing;
- the 13th IEEE International Conference on Advanced and Trusted Computing;
- the 16th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications;
- the International Conference on Cloud and Big Data Computing;
- the International Conference on Internet of People.
The 2016 IEEE Smart World Congress will host European Workshops, Special Sessions, Industrial Sessions, demos and videos contests.
